In relation to the pilot of rapid testing for Covid19 currently occurring at Middlemore Hospital - I was wondering whether you are aware of the relevant authorisation under the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Point-of-care Tests) Order 2021 that is currently in effect to allow such RAT testing to occur. In particular, I am interested in whether the approval has been limited to Counties Manakau DHB only or if certain RAT testing kits have been approved generally for use by all persons.
